Research has shown that exterior cladding materials on an exterior wall can prevent most, but not all, moisture from entering into a wall. Having a backup control system behind the cladding to control moisture by shedding it to the exterior is important for the long term durability of an exterior wall. A significant component of the backup moisture control system is often called by building envelope designers a drainage plane or a water resistive barrier (WRB). See how Spray Foam Insulation can act as a WRB and help control moisure in wall applications.
This course discusses some basic building science fundamentals, while looking at specific code requirements in the IRC, IBC and the international energy conservation code. It addresses why some of the trade-offs and differences exist between those two sets of code requirements. Lastly, we'll work through an example and the decision making process to determine the continuous insulation and vapor retarder requirements for a project in a specific climate zone.
During the past 20 years, the building sector has seen a significant shift around the use of continuous insulation (CI). Evolving from what was once perceived as an advanced greenbuilding, high-efficiency option, CI is now a standard method and materials practice across most climatic regions. This course will discuss what continuous insulation is, the driver behind its rise, performance benefits, codes and standards, and current material solutions.
